Indian Creators Are The New Voice For LGBTQIA+ Community
Cinema reflects society and vice versa. For years, the LGBTQIA+ community was considered taboo in Indian society and no filmmaker dared to create content for or on the community. Even when bold filmmakers tried to spread the idea of same sex relationships, either no one saw it or it ended up creating controversies.
However, in the span of a few years, something happened and everything changed. OTT is probably the best thing that happened with respect to Indian content creators. OTT gave them the freedom to come up with stories they never got the chance to tell because of censorship in conventional cinema or television.
At first, cuss words and nudity entertained the Indian audience on OTT. But slowly, creators drifted to LGBTQIA+ content. Sometimes it seems like a sweet sensation, sometimes it is thought-provoking, but every time we see actors going bold with LGBTQIA+ movies, they are making it look normal.
Kudos to Indian creators for making the LGBTQIA+ community a new normal of society.
Filmmakers are constantly creating stories on the LGBTQIA+ community. Even recent theatrical releases have explored LGBTQIA+ themes. Most of the Indian web series we see recently have a storyline related to LGBTQIA+. Surely, everyone wants to contribute to the new-loved genre by creating unique, romantic and exciting content on the theme.
With many OTT movies and web series explored, and many already in line, we can be sure that someday people won’t bat an eye when two girls or two boys kiss each other on the streets.
Even relatively smaller creators on YouTube have explored the romanticism of the same-sex relationship. Dice Media’s Firsts Season 3, Just Another Love Story, Neverland, and many more, that are just an endeavor to make the situation right for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Even though the majority of people have LGBTQIA+ stories in web series like Maaya 2 and Gandii Baat, or waiting for Ram Gopal Verma’s Dangerous, I would say that’s fair. Even these are the stories of different shades and intimacy is nothing but a rage version of romanticism.
If you are looking for good decent love stories or some spectacular performances in the realm of LGBTQIA+, I would suggest you watch Sabnam Mausi, Super Delux, Made In Heaven, and the recently released The Married Woman. There’s still a long way to go, but there’s no doubt that the journey is going to be an interesting and appealing one, thanks to Indian creators.
There should be more movies on such relationships, there should be more stories to support the LGBTQIA+ community, and it must include A-list Bollywood actors to raise the voice for the community. Thus, we can say films are an important part of society as it changes our whole perspective of seeing someone or something.
We have seen how make-out scenes and bikini scenes are normalized in Indian movies. Now, Indian creators are the new voice for the LGBTQIA+ community and the voice is loud enough to make people listen to everything they say.
